This course was completed as part of my resettlement training. The administration on the course was excellent, from pre-course administration and communications to the resources (vehicles, radios) provided on the course.
A ratio of normally 3 instructors to 8 students meant a high standard of instruction, which was all relevant to the industry. The course is run like a military course with well prepared lessons and practical exercises to confirm tuition.
The practical exercises are excellent and you will receive relevant and honest feedback (good or bad) meaning you will take plenty away from the course.
I completed the 10 day course. Whilst the 5 day course will get you the certificate and you will learn all the main points, the second week goes into a bit more depth and gives you plenty more practice, which will stand you in good stead come going on an actual job. I have worked on jobs subsequently with other ex-students, and other operators trained on a similar basis, and this course enables you to work together with minimal preparation as you will all be singing off the same song sheet.
Highly recommended, enjoyable and practical course.
